The warm and friendly Greetings and best wishes on the occasion of Valentine's Day.

I hope you enjoy and as always expect your criticisms and proposals.

Greetings friendly,

A few words about Valentine `s Day:

Saint Valentine's Day (commonly shortened to Valentine's Day) is an annual holiday held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions. The holiday is named after one or more early Christian martyrs named Valentine and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). The holiday first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.

Modern Valentine's Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have largely given way to mass-produced greeting cards.

The sending of Valentines was a fashion in nineteenth-century Great Britain, and, in 1847, Esther Howland developed a successful business in her Worcester, Massachusetts home with hand-made Valentine cards based on British models. The popularity of Valentine cards in 19th century America, where many Valentine cards are now general greeting cards rather than declarations of love, was a harbinger of the future commercialization of holidays in the United States. It's considered one of the Hallmark holidays.

The U.S. Greeting Card Association estimates that approximately one billion valentines are sent each year worldwide, making the day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year, behind Christmas. The association estimates that, in the US, men spend on average twice as much money as women.

Hallo Adrian
The colours in this photograph is not only beautiful, it is strong and portrays warmth and immense delight. I very much like how the silhouette of the mountain separates the sky and the water. It is indeed a striking image, the overall red appropriate to celebrate on Valentines day. Thanks for sharing and best regards.

Ciao Adrian, my today neighbour, fantastic burning sky, wonderful sunset, fascinating romantic composition, very well done, happy Valentine Day, ciao Silvio

helo Adrian,

Cine-i harnic si se trezeste cu noaptea in cap, sa faca urari indragostitilor?
Urarea este valabila si celor indragostiti de...munca?
Sau de bani?
Sau de nevasta altuia?
Felicitari !

Hi Adrian,
This one is even more impressive than the one you've posted on TL. The colors in the sky are simply amazing. I love the strong contrast and the sliver of land on the lower part of the composition.

Dag Adrian,

Dit zijn de kleuren voor verliefde paren, maar op mijn leeftijd zijn de kleuren er nog wel maar handhaving niet altijd.
Ik vind dit echt warm overkomen ik kijk er zeker met de glimlacht naar toe.


Thanks for your greetings, and for those fiery colours of a magnificent sunset Adrian, good job my friend.

Mamaaaa, ce culori! Scuze, nu prea am batut netul wekendul asta, si am ratat-o! Rar am vazut un cer atat de plin de nuante, galben rosu, portocaliu, toate la un loc!
Felicitari si norocos ai fost ca ai vazut si surprins o asemenea imagine!
Numai bine,

Pentru ca iubirea de natura nu trece niciodata imi permit sa comentez cu ceva intarziere imaginea ta dedicata indragostitilor. Ai avut mare noroc sa surprinzi un asemenea peisaj, cu o multime de culori, cu norii care par amenintatori si totusi o mare linistita.
Numai bine,
